All Talk and No Do
It seems everyone likes to talk about doing things but very few follow through. Have you noticed this? Little irks me more.
Poker Guy kept talking about Vegas and trying to convince me I wanted to go, but when I started trying to pin down a date, he suddenly was busy or needed to check his funds...always had an excuse. I finally told him I'd believe him when it happened and shortly thereafter sent that insomnia message.
I had a backpacking trip in Colorado that got rescheduled until June. Since I had already planned to be out of town but now had nowhere to be and my Wyoming crush had said he wished I could come sooner, I sent him a message that I could be there 4 or 5 days at the end of May if he was still interested. I got no response. One more case of all talk and no do. I sent another insomnia message last night and may have burned that bridge...but really if he was serious about me visiting he should have sent some kind of reply.
It's not limited to guys, either. People say they would love to come on my road trips, or workout, or go camping but something always comes up and I end up going alone. From now on I'm only planning solo trips or events with BCO. People do have to cancel at times even with the outdoor club, but at least I know they really do backpack, camp, or kayak on occasion because I meet them while we're participating and not just talking.
UPDATE: He didn't have reliable internet service where he's staying. I'm busy trying to pry the foot out of my mouth so I can use it to kick myself. If I haven't completely screwed things up and it gets serious...I may have to come back and edit this post before I tell him about my blog...
